sse plc (SSE) Key Developments

SSE plc Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal 2015

SSE plc provided earnings guidance for the fiscal 2015. For the year, the company expects that it will deliver adjusted earnings per share around the level achieved in fiscal 2014. Operating profit is expected to be slightly higher than the level achieved in fiscal 2014. At the same time, however, in view of the wider energy sector conditions, the company continues to recognize that its ability to deliver increases in adjusted earnings per share remains subject to additional risk in 2015/16 and 2016/17.

National Grid Selects Peterhead Gas-Fired Station for Voltage Support Services

National Grid plc has selected Peterhead gas-fired power station, owned and operated by SSE, for voltage support services, between April 2016 and September 2017. Voltage control is the method by which National Grid uses equipment such as power stations, overhead lines, underground cables and compensation equipment to ensure that the voltage at which the GB system operates remains within statutory limits, both in day-to-day operation and following a fault. Peterhead was selected because its proposal was determined to be the most beneficial across a number of factors. These include the ability to provide system stability and resilience, and value for money for GB consumers. The baseline value of the contract is GBP 15 million, and any utilisation fees will be reflective of market conditions at that time.

SSE plc Announces Executive Changes

Lord Smith of Kelvin, Chairman of SSE plc, has decided to bring forward his previously-announced intention to step down from the post and from the Board to the end of the company's Annual General Meeting on 23 July 2015. This is earlier than planned and follows the announcement that he will be appointed Chairman of IMI plc. Richard Gillingwater CBE, currently Deputy Chairman, will take up his previously-announced appointment as Chairman of SSE plc on completion of the AGM, subject to being re-elected to the Board at the Meeting. The company expects to appoint a new non-Executive Director and appoint a Senior Independent Director in the next few months. Richard joined the Board of SSE plc as a non-Executive Director in 2007 and became Senior Independent Director in 2012. Following an appointment process led by independent non-Executive Director Katie Bickerstaffe, it was announced in November 2014 that he would become, first, Deputy Chairman and, subsequently, Chairman. Robert joined the Board of SSE plc as a non-Executive Director in 2003 and became Chairman in 2005. Although he will no longer be a member of the Board, he will be retained by SSE's Executive Committee for a further year to provide advice and counsel on key business issues relating to Scotland.
